Call of Duty is BOUND to Fail

301d ago ... In a recent blog post, I predicted that the next generation of consoles would bring the end of Call of Duty. This is something that currently might be hard to believe, as the franchise shatters records every single year. It's a billion dollar franchise, backed by millions of dollars spent on advertising and promotions. Call of Duty is massive, and that's exactly the way Activision made it. H...

Put the shovel down

312d ago ... Lets face it, even the most hardened Microsoft fan knows that Microsoft are digging them selves into a deep hole with the Xbox One. I can not imagine the meeting where Microsoft employees sat around a table and agreed that the Xbox Ones policies where a great idea, who are these people and do they have a clue what gamer's actually want form a console. I can understand that piracy is costing dev...

Why Sony won E3 (it's not why you think)

315d ago ... 25 years from now, on the brink of the next-next-gen, people will be asking one another in hushed tones "I wonder if so-and-so will pull a Sony like they did with the PS4..." History was made yesterday, and it's for a very simple reason: gamers won. For the first time in years, a multi-billion dollar company paid attention to the heart's desire of gamers everywhere. Plenty of fantastic games we...

Let the Hypocrisy Flow

316d ago ... Xbox One doesn't have backwards compatibility? No biggie. Ps4 requires payment to play online? I wipe myself with $5 a month! Xbox One has mandatory installs? Whatever, man; Halo! I read a blog by DedicatedToGamers a few days ago, in which he said (in summary) 'I'm not afraid of a console with bad policies, I'm afraid of the gamers that accept them'. I must now concur with grave prejud...

Microsoft’s E3 Show and Rating

316d ago ... Microsoft knew they had to come hard and be all about games after the horrendous Xbox One reveal, and that’s exactly what they did. But did it work? Metal Gear Solid 5: Microsoft kicked the game off with Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, and boy does it look amazingly good, however, it’s also coming to PS4. It seems like MS and Sony have switched lovers with Sony courting Bungie, and Micro...

The new Xbox, titled "Xbox One" has been revealed and I'm rather scared.

335d ago ... The new "Xbox One" has been revealed. Microsoft has drawn back the curtain. What they seem to take so much pride in has the gaming community reeling back. It's not quite as promising as we'd hoped. At the release event, a whole array of major upcoming games were showcased and announced for Microsoft's new "Xbox One". Titles like "Call of Duty: Ghosts" for Xbox One can't help but provoke image...

The Evolution Of the Multi Player FPS

354d ago ... Just as there's been evolution in species, there's also been evolution in just about every little thing we, as humans, can produce. In my generation movies started with Star Wars, and now we get the pleasure to experience the exhilaration of the many Marvel hero movies. With food our french fries were innovated into chili cheese fries then to carne asada fries. I'm so, so grateful for those car...

Nintendo Has Most Certainly Won The Next Generation

365d ago ... Nintendo, the creators of the game industry have already won this new generation with the Wii U. With its clearly vast library of games and incredible exclusives like Halo 5, Final Fantasy XVII, Uncharted 7 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 8, it has already bested the test of time and has shown us what a next gen system is truly capable of, rendering the upcoming Nextbox and PS4 obsolete and dea...

Xbox Live Hacked by Anonymous?

373d ago ... An article from yesterday raised the idea that Xbox Live may have been hacked by Anonymous in retaliation for the rumours suggesting Microsoft's next console will be always-online. N4G mods have since changed the title and source, but you can see the comments do not reflect what the current title suggests.

MS's silence on the NextBox is a good thing...

392d ago ... Sony, Sony, Sony. I really do like Sony, and they've been the talk of the town lately. They hit a home run with their Playstation 4 reveal that was just a few weeks ago, and now at GDC they've been picking up even more positive press in regards to their absolutely aggressive upcoming plan to bring more and more indie developers into the fold. Not only did they announce a ton of upcoming games f...

Getting your Xbox profile back. Not!

400d ago ... I have 2 Xbox 360's so this is not about how the Xbox sucks and it's not about how the Xbox live sucks. It is about how to get your profile back. You can't. Microsoft has locked down Xbox live like Ft. Knox. I understand why they have. They don't want to be hacked and after what happened to the Psn network who could blame them. The problem lies in how to get your profile back when somethin...

Can Destiny beat Halo?

429d ago ... Recently, Bungie unveiled their brand new video game titled Destiny. If you guys do not know, Bungie were the original creators of the gaming franchise, Halo. After their final Halo game creation, Halo: Reach, they left their whole universe in the hands of Microsoft at the end of 2010 which then formed 343 Industries. 343 Industries is a growing company with over 200 hard workers, and they alre...

Sony Will Beat Microsoft next-gen

443d ago ... I've been doing a lot of thinking about this and I have come to the conclusion that Sony will beat Microsoft. I will explain. Microsoft and Sony are the ones in direct competition. They are after the same fan base. They both take similar approaches. Both have similar gaming experiences. The difference is Microsoft has no clear path. Sony continue to put out plenty of core first party exclusi...

PS3 passes 360: M$ wins the generation

460d ago ... Recent reports suggest that the PS3 has passed the Xbox 360 in sales. On N4G we've seen articles saying that it really doesn't matter, and we've seen users disagree. This blog is meant to explain all of these articles that all have titles along the lines of "PS3 passes Xbox, so what?" Back in 2005, it was common on the internet to see the fanboys of the day raving about how the Xbox 360 woul...

SteamBox – The Ultimate Console Experience

499d ago ... Full disclosure before we begin: I am a PC/PS3 gamer. I have tons of game on steam as well as over 30 games on PS3, and am a PS+ subscriber. I like PC games, some PS3 exclusives, and even XBOX exclusive games like Halo. Also I love Mario, Zelda, and other Nintendo IPs. 2013 is right around the corner and everyone is getting excited about the new consoles coming out. I myself was one of those...

VGAs GOTY Happy Nomination Shock

518d ago ... Something quite amazing has happened in the world of video games. A video game award show, that has the public opinion of being a glorified trailer exhibit, has done the unthinkable. I’m talking about the VGAs game of the year nominations. Before I get down to the main topic of this article, lets first look at what has not been nominated for goty. There is no Halo 4, which judging by th...

Hard Pressed to be Impressed

527d ago ... As we're nearing the beginning of a new year, I begin to wonder if 2013 will bear the sweet fruit of a mind-blowing video game. I often find myself thinking back to this year and considering the rather unimpressive displays I've experienced, my hope is nearly running dry. During my recollection of this year in gaming, I remember only a small handful of games that were able to whet my appetite,...

My god... it's just a review!

532d ago ... I think you all need to take a step back for a minute. Stop, breathe through the nose, and exhale out the mouth. And do it slowly.... slowly.... Good. Now let's talk. I especially want to talk to everyone getting all bent out of shape about the current Halo 4 reviews. Or as I've seen, anyone who doesn't give the game the glowing review they feel it deserves. Now because of this, we actually...
